"What ho!" said Motty.
"What ho! What ho!"

PL NOTES:

SECTION 26 - Matilda Price - A miller's daughter, and Miss Squeers' bosom friend

Hi Pea. Good to see you recording. Always a pleasure. I found a few things I think may be in error. Please correct me if I am wrong. This is my first play...and they are very hard to follow.

Thanks and great job!

~1:30 Missed line - bottom pg 29, "Well, John."
~1:44 Missed line - bottom pg 30, "What's the matter, Fanny?"

Uploaded Section 39
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/shortplaysfromdickens_miggs_39.mp3
Duration: 11:05

I stated the page at the beginning for you Anthony so you know where I begin. Todd can leave it out later.

I've made comments about some noises that aren't words, (when the text calls for them) like coughs and groans and sobs and sniffs (she's a bit of a drama queen) so that you know it's deliberate and not misedited. :) Feel free of course to use any or none of these.

Section 45 is recorded, to be edited shortly.

Todd,
I forgot to read the whole section title from the MW along with my voice credit. I will wait for PL notes and if there are no changes to be made I'll upload a separate file with new voice credits in the proper format, if that's ok?

I realised as I uploaded Montague Tigg (Section 72), that you hadn't as yet given me the go ahead. I have to say that I think I was superb :wink: and I hope that you accept my reading:

It would be better to have the whole file now so we PL what will be used.

Thanks, Todd

All claims entered now for you except for the two Miggs roles which were already claimed.
